XF 1.4 Show all subcategories in Resource Manager list?

    I'm looking for a way to show all the resource manager sub-categories by default in the Resource Manager (i.e. fully expand the sidebar menu). It looks like I need to work on the resource_category_sidebar_list template to do this:

    <xen:foreach loop="$categories" value="$_category">
        <li class="{xen:if '{$_category.resource_category_id} == {$category.resource_category_id}', selected}">
            <a href="{xen:link resources/categories, $_category}" {xen:if $_category.category_description, 'title="{xen:helper striphtml, $_category.category_description}" class="Tooltip" data-tipclass="resourceCategoryTooltip"'}>{$_category.category_title}</a>
            <span class="count">{xen:number $_category.resource_count}</span>
        <xen:if is="{$_category.resource_category_id} == {$showChildId}">
            {xen:raw $childCategoryHtml}
    However, the "{xen:raw $childCategoryHtml}" part only shows the subcategories for the current category, so just editing out the surrounding "if" tags doesn't work.

    Any thoughts on how I can do this using templating?

    You can't. Hierarchy is created in php code, not in template.

    Thanks Arty, as I feared!

    I'm finding myself asking the same question as I'm only using a couple of RM categories and would prefer that they sidebar tree menu was expanded by default.

    Is the current answer the same as above, that there is no way to do it?
